Wondering if anyone wants to take the commission of setting up a Russian force defence against a Prussian Corp with a British / Hanoverian Division ( some British highlander and Wallmoden's forces).
Thought of trying this, the Russians will have a static defence, possible reinforcement for counter attacks.
I could set up both but wondered if it might make a more interesting game.


The Russian side is from hill to background town

I will give you the force schedule, need what units are to defend where, can specify reserves.
Green felt are woods, the stone area is a bolder field ( think like Devil's Den) impassable to artillery and cavalry.

You have Russian IV Corp lead by LG Tolstoy, the 11th Division is normal 2 brigades musketeer, 1 Jaeger 2 light artillery 1 position.
23rd Division is weak 1 musketeer brigade, 1 mixed, 1 converged grenadier and foot Cossacks, 1 light battery but reinforced with 2 position batteries.
Russian German legion of 6 infantry battalions, 2 Hussars and 2 horse batteries
II Cavalry Corp with 2 light brigades and its horse battery
2 additional horse batteries from reserve.
Bavarian division 2 brigades of 4 musketeer 1 light battalion also with 2 light batteries 1 heavy battery.
Between the encampment and town are 2 facine walls, 4 x 1/2 revetments, 1 full revetment for artillery or infantry and stop the hill bolder field is a stone wall that can't be moved, the others can go anywhere.
Forces can be designated to go anywhere from the road to top of picture.

The Prussians took the hill, the 9th Silesian Ldw Regt took a RD horse battery head on then had to form square to beat a fresh 2nd RD Hussar regt.


The Bavarians held long but once attrition was taking its toll as well as a brigad of Russian Dragoons on their flank were defeated it was a matter of being defeated in detail.
